Poster - Global potential accessibility freight to intercontinental container throughput of European sea ports, 2011

global-potential-accessibility-freightKey Messages

1) Global potential accessibility with respect to freight transport shows a clear centre-periphery pattern for all transport modes.

2) The North Sea ports are most attractive for freight transport because of their amount of intercontinental container throughput and their central location.

3) The dispersed locations of intermodal centres result in a more diverse pattern of freight transport by rail.

4) Coastal zones have generally better access to freight transport by water, with the exception of regions where inland waterways are well developed.
